TEHRAN - An explosion blamed on a technical problem caused a fire at an oil refinery in Iran during a visit by President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Tuesday, the semi-official Fars news agency reported.

Six people were injured but Ahmadinejad was not hurt and appeared live on state television giving a scheduled speech to mark the inauguration of a new phase of the refinery in Abadan, south-western Iran.
